I was born in Baranavichy, Belarus. I've studied bayan (button accordion) at the music school in Baranavichy, Republican Music College in Minsk, Belarusian State Academy of Music in Minsk, and Prague Conservatory in the Czech Republic. Also, I graduated from the Composition Department of Prague Conservatory and the Sound Engineering Department of Prague Academy of Performing Arts (HAMU).
I am very grateful to my teachers (Alena Zaliotava, Iryna Zhuhautsova, Miron Bula, Dzmitry Zhurauski, Piotr Vandzilouski, and Josef Hrebik) and, of course, to my parents and grandparents, who give me a lot of support, a huge inspiration, and invaluable experience. Since September 2011, I've been living in Prague, Czech Republic. But I'm still trying to keep a strong connection with Belarus and Belarusian music.
My main aim is to spread the idea of accordion music without any stylistic borders. I'm involved in different music projects but also working as a solo performer, composer, arranger, sound engineer, and music teacher. I write music for films and theatre performances.
Do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have. I am open to hearing any reactions about my music, your offers, and suggestions. I'm also working as a session musician on distance — if you want to have my accordion on your song or piece, you can send me your playback, and I will record my part and send it back to you. For more details, please feel free to contact me. Feel warmly invited to follow my Soundcloud here.
In September 2022, I released my first solo album Hlybini.
Also, in 2022, I composed and recorded music for the animated movie Suzie in the Garden. The film was a nominee for the 30th annual Czech Lion Award.
Currently, I'm collaborating with Cottbus State Theatre, Germany. I composed music for a psychological thriller called Equus. I'm performing it live on stage. There will be a few more shows until the end of 2023, so feel invited!
